I have only been doing home health for a few months now, and for the most part, I like it. At some times, however, I am confused as to what exactly I should be doing for a patient. When doing a soc assessment for a therapy only patient, I ask the patient what medications they are taking. They usually show me the bottles, and I write it all down. Some have the little medi-sets. If the patient or the cg seems to be capable, I leave it at that. Another nurse I know will set up patients with sn just to monitor their medication, and she goes every week or so and opens up the medisets and counts the pills or whatever. Am I not being diligent enough, or is she doing overkill?
